Japan and dating

He might just not be compatible with the majority of Japanese girls.To be fair, I used to feel that most kids of my age weren’t mature enough.My personal experience also tells me that dating in Japan is completely feasible and a lot of my friends seem to be doing OK with dating here.

I wrote him many cute love letters in Japanese and English but he didn’t reply for many months.Since he didn’t specify what made him think that girls of his age were childish I can only speculate, but if he doesn’t make effort to unlearn his cultural values and learn new sets of values, he is likely to continue having difficulty.I’m not saying he should adapt himself completely; it’s ultimately his choice.Dating often involves a lot of hidden rules and non-verbal cues.These are not the kind of thing you learn in your language textbooks.I am less judgemental now because I realise that I might simply have had a differently way of measuring maturity. Isabel, a German girl who has been living in Japan for about half a year, is a good example.
